Abstract (en)

An apparatus for coupling to a control cable having a cable end protuberance 192, 292 attached thereto includes a member having a cable terminating structure 190, 290. The cable terminating structure includes a first wall 400 defining a first detenting structure for receiving the cable end protuberance 192, 292 and a second wall 404 spaced apart from the first wall 400. At least one of the first wall 400 and the second wall 404 includes a resilient portion for deflecting in response to a pulling force applied to the cable terminating structure by the cable end protuberance 192, 292 so as to release the cable end protuberance 192, 292 from the cable terminating structure 190, 290. <IMAGE>
